British Taxation By Carolyn Rose

What do you think when you think about British taxation? I think unfair, why did the British make those taxes, and I want to know what started it and why, if you want to know more about British taxation the read on. This article is about how British taxation was started, how it ended, and everything in the in the middle. Like, the sugar act and the stamp act. How people dealt with the British taxation and what they were taxed on.

Some of the British taxation papers

How I would view this as a patriot

I can't believe that parlement agreed with Greenville and began to pass all of the new taxes for colonies. The first of these money raising laws we call the sugar act. This added on extra taxes on sugar, SUGAR if all things!! Who does that?! Well we payed it for a little while but when a lot of those people were dying because they didn't have enough money to pay for that stuff we started fighting back. When that didn't they made the stamp act this tax was imposed on all of us Americans and required us to pay a tax on every piece of printed paper they used. Ship's papers, legal documents, licenses, newspapers, other publications, and even playing cards were taxed this made us so mad that we really started fighting back and that's when we protested by disguising ourselves as Mohawks, we were led by Samuel Adams, against the tea act and more generally against taxation without representation.
